Darwin – A Jewel of Australia

Darwin is the capital of the Australian state, Northern Territory, and is located at the top right end of the country.

The city is one of Australia’s top vacation hub, attracting many visitors every year. The city has a new look to it. The main reason for this is in 1974, a cyclone struck the town, completely destroying it.


Soon after the town was rebuilt, it took a new life of its own. Ever since, people have been coming to Darwin to see what the town has to offer. Darwin is also a nice town for families and couples to live and work.

Just like other Australian cities and towns, Darwin has a very low crime rate and a very healthy climate – making it an ideal place to live. As for the local hotels in Darwin, they range from three to five stars and have accommodations that are plentiful.

If you like to sunbathe, there are the Mindil and Fannie Bay beaches for you to enjoy yourself. Since much of Darwin is surrounded by swamps, you will find plenty of fishes, sea lions, and other exotic creatures there.

Shopping in Darwin is not like shopping in a regular town, although they do have malls, boutique shops, and things of that sort. Here, you will find shops that re more native in their approach.
